Gov't to tighten taxation on individuals


20:30, June 07, 2013

BEIJING, June 7 (Xinhua) -- The government is likely to bring individuals under stricter control in accordance with a draft amendment on the Law on the Administration of Tax Collection, which calls for including all individuals in a compulsory taxation category.

In China, compulsory individual taxation currently targets people who run profitable business.

Once the amendment is adopted by the legislature, tax collection authorities will monitor all individuals, businessmen and otherwise, to see if they have been engaged in any activity that should be taxed.

Under the amendment, employers and banking institutions will be obliged to report the incomes of their employees to taxation departments, while people who fail to pay due taxes on time could have to pay a fine equal to 20 percent or less of the unpaid part of their income.
